Ikea's new 'Sagoskatt' collection features the work of some of the world's most creative and uninhibited designers: children. But rather than a set of lamps or chairs like other Ikea products, Sagoskatt is a collection of stuffed toys, making its childish inspiration a more fitting one.

The Sagoskatt line consists of 10 stuffed toys, each of which is a spitting image of drawings submitted by kids from around the world. To get the drawings, Ikea invited any and all kids to enter submissions, resulting in a total pool of over 52,000 drawings. From these, Ikea selected the 10 that now make up Sagoskatt.

A portion of the sales from the Sagoskatt toys will be donated to the Ikea Foundation, a charity for the benefit of children that's administered by the Swedish flat-pack furniture retailer.
